    Found this in Gordon Thomson's IMDB profile


    Well, this is a mini-series not a soap opera, but it certainly looks very bitchy 80s!

    "A candy dynasty". I'm imagining oil rigs that spurt chocolate and edible diamonds.

    The webside isn't even up anymore. It was lousy crap, as 99% of all web soaps.

    Have you seen it? Have you seen CANDYNASTY?

    I think there was also a web soap starring Maxwell Caulfield?
    Btw has anyone seen the movie with the former The Colbys stars?

    No. I think Jeff's daughter wrote it.

    Yes. :(
    But apart from Lindas and Gordons scenes it bored me to death. Even THEIR scenes were boring, but at least i could watch the actors in something new, so those scenes were kind of decent, but just for that reason. Wouldn't recommend it and will definitly never want to watch it again. So no loss that the page is gone.

    Most of the US based web soaps suck. It annoys me that the daytime soaps still can't properly feature minority characters and even on the web soaps where they have total control, they *still* don't feature minorities in leading roles lol. It shows the industry has a problem in front of and behind the scenes. The best of the bunch is probably The Bay. It ran for years online before Amazon Prime picked it up and turned it into an actual show. The production values are good and it's watchable. My only complaint is that it can be too dark and brooding.

    I love web series. I've watched a ton of them. A few of the soapiest ones that I've enjoyed the most:

    G&T

    (Italian, LGBT romance drama)




    Eastsiders (It's a really well written, thoughtful, funny, LGBT relationship drama. The fourth and final season just came out on Netflix--but it started as a web series.)




    The Horizon

    (Typical Australian soap with an LGBT focus)




    I find the low budget-ness of all them really endearing.

    Tainted Dreams

    This is another one I watched that ended up on Amazon Prime. I watched this one mainly because a few of my favorite former daytime actresses were in it.
